FEATURED ARTISTS

Kim Jun Hyung

South Korea

 

Kim Jun Hyung (b.1984) introduces the bible to his audiences in two ways: by expressing the meaning of the words in the bible through his art, and to paint scenes from the bible that prompt philosophical and religious discourse among audiences. Embedded into each painting are excerpts of the bible written in neat rows covering entire surfaces, like a wallpaper motif.


Kim studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Hyupsung University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in 2012. The artist has participated in numerous shows in Miami, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Seoul. Kim will hold his first and much-awaited solo show in Hong Kong in May 2019.

 

Aung Myint

Myanmar

 

Myanmar artist Aung Myint (b. 1946) is known for his mother and child inspired drawings. Drawn with a single unbroken line of black acrylic they evoke an intimate physical connection between the two figures.


As a self-taught artist, he works with painting and installation and is regarded as one of the pioneers of performance and experimental art in Myanmar. He loves to experiment with different mediums to explore the themes of cultural identity and personal memories. His practice often questions the place of small collectives within larger communities, both within and outside the borders of his homeland. The artist’s works can be found at the Guggenheim and the National Gallery Singapore.

 

You Yang

China


Following on the formalistic elements of Chinese Political Pop and Cynical Realism, artist You Yang (b.1981), portrays the suppressed rage and vitality of his generation through depictions of the tiger - a solitary, inherently arrogant, and constantly insecure beast that is primitively violent. Being dedicated to the field of urban public art, You is familiar with Pop Art and mass culture in China.

 

You was born in Liao Ning Province, he went to the Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts for his Bachelor’s degree and the Shanghai University for his Master’s degree in Art. The artist is currently an instructor in the North Eastern Normal University.
